The Mystery Man and Shady Figure are enemies in Octopath Traveler. They are the bosses in Chapter 3 of Ophilia’s story.

StoryEdit

The Mystery Man and Shady Figure are members of the cult dedicated to the “Savior,” Mattias, whose goal is to bring Galdera’s flame to Orsterra.

With the goal of stealing the Sacred Flame from the Flamebearer, the two men kidnap Lysa, the daughter of Bishop Donovan. A young boy, Daniel, is asked to deliver a ransom letter to Donovan.

Ophilia is able to produce a confession from Donovan after realizing Daniel’s delivery of the letter was the reason for Donovan’s unusual behavior. She follows the letter’s directions, leading to her rescue of Lysa from the two cultists in the Seaside Grotto.

BattleEdit

The Mystery Man and Shady Figure will begin battle by locking off their elemental weaknesses. The Shady Figure will increase his actions per turn to 2.

The majority of attacks used by the two men are elemental, so having a Cleric cast Reflective Veil will help alleviate the damage.

Once one of the men dies, the surviving one will unlock his elemental weaknesses, increase his shields by 3, and increase his actions per turn to 3.
